Susanna’s Day

20060908susanna

Lovely 2 year old Susanna drew her first picture of a face today all by herself. It even had hair and a body. My mother spent some time with her yesterday showing her how to draw a face. At the time Susanna had not tried to draw anything. I have seen this many times with little children – that it sometimes takes a while for what you teach them to come out in what they do – in this case 24 hours.

Susanna is also potty training which is going well without major stress. The hardest thing is to get her out of the bathroom after she has washed her hands. She likes to play with water, soap, toothpaste and brushes. i am trying to explain to her that I want her to come straight out of the bathroom when she has finished washing hands. Maybe I also need to give her more opportunities for water play in appropriate places at appropriate times.
